Sony FCB-EH6500 3.27 Megapixel HD Block Camera
Featuring Full 1920 x 1080/30p HD, 30x Zoom, Wide-Dynamic Range, and Auto ICR, the new FCBEH6500
compact High Definition block camera is ideal for Security Monitoring, Intelligent Traffic,
Remote Monitoring and Video Conferencing applications.
In continuing its commitment to HD technology and superb picture quality for applications that require
dynamic, high-resolution images and flexibility, Sony is introducing the FCB-EH6500 Color HD Block
Camera. This impressive new model extends application possibilities and features full 1920 x 1080 HD
resolution. The FCB-EH6500 incorporates a 1/2.8-type Exmor™ CMOS image sensor, boasting
approximately 3,270,000 effective pixels for exceptional picture quality. Other features, such as Wide-
D, Image Stabilization, Auto ICR and Spherical Privacy Zone Masking, make the FCB-EH6500 ideally
suited for security and surveillance applications. Available picture effects include Color Enhancement,
E-flip, Nega Art, Black & White, and Mirror Image.
Features & BenefitsFull 1920 x 1080/30p High Definition: Ideally suited for security monitoring applications,
the FCB-EH6500 HD block camera offers full 1920 x 1080/30p high definition video output.
Digital Output (Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2): The digital LVDS interface provides easy access for IP and
Gigabit Ethernet applications. Thanks to the digital interface, the quality of the camera’s video
signal is maintained with minimal deterioration. This can lead to cost savings due to the
direct connection with codecs/systems without the need for any additional components.
Temperature Readout: The value of the internal temperature of the FCB-EH6500 camera can
be read out via the VISCA™ protocol. When checking the internal temperature of equipment
(i.e., speed dome unit), it is possible to use this data to turn a fan or heater on/off inside the
equipment as needed.
Color Enhancement: Ideally suited for low vision applications, new color enhancement options
can make reading text and pictures less challenging. Available options include monochrome,
binary, inverted and enhanced color modes.
Upgrated Features & Benefits
Auto Wide-D Mode: The new FCB-EH6500 camera monitors the luminance differences within
an image in high contrast environments and automatically switches on and off the Wide D
feature according to the contrasted lighting environment. In addition, it is possible to select
three levels of luminance differences (low/mid/high).
Additional Wide-D Modes: In addition to the Auto Wide-D mode, the new FCB-EH6500 camera
features additional modes, including Indoor, Outdoor, One-push WB, ATW, Manual, Sodium
Image Stabilization: Minimizes shaky images caused by low-frequency vibration.
Auto ICR Function: The FCB-EH6500 features a high sensitivity imager, ideal for day/night
functions at less than 0.5 lux (F1.6, ICR off) with high-sensitivity mode on.
